From Dr. Jane's Notebook

What does your home say about you?

The old expression, “if these walls could talk” urges us to imagine that the houses and buildings we inhabit store the memories of life.  In truth,  our homes say a great deal about us.  They reflect our taste, our interests and our level of happiness. If  walls could talk in your home, what do you suppose they’d say? Here are a few questions to ask yourself:

The task of living together in a family is an awesome task. It requires that we find a way to fit together the needs of  everyone who lives in the household, pets included. As parents, our challenge is to do just a little better job of raising our own children than our parents did with theirs. Ideally, responsible parents will sit down together and develop their own set of guidelines for creating a home and raising their family. So… what would the walls of your house say?
